A daily look at late-breaking news, coming events and stories that will be talked about in Pennsylvania on Tuesday:
LAWMAKER TRYING TO IMPEACH AG KATHLEEN KANE EXPECTED TO CALL WITNESSES
State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, a Butler County Republican, claims Kane - a Democrat - broke the law by refusing to defend Pennsylvania’s ban on same-sex marriage against a court challenge because she believes it’s unconstitutional. Metcalfe’s resolution also cites Kane’s decision to kill an investigation in which she acknowledged four Democratic state lawmakers were allegedly caught on recordings accepting money from a confidential informant.

Opponents of the law contend that making juvenile sex offenders register with the police amounts to cruel and unusual punishment and prevents them from turning around their lives.
RETIRED PLAYERS CLAIM NFL’S $765 MILLION OFFER TO SETTLE CONCUSSION LAWSUITS WILL GIVE THEM ‘NOTHING AT ALL’
The retired players want a federal judge in Philadelphia to reject the settlement. The latest objections come from former players who aren’t disabled but still suffer from headaches, personality changes, trouble multitasking and other side effects they link to concussions suffered while playing in the league. Senior U.S. District Judge Anita B. Brody fears the settlement is too low to cover 20,000 retirees for 65 years, as planned.
PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT EXPANSION MOVING FORWARD
The multibillion-dollar plan had been scuttled over concerns that 72 nearby homes and about a dozen businesses would be demolished. The reconfigured expansion plan won’t displace those residents and businesses.
WOMAN WHO LOST LEG TO RUNAWAY SCHOOL BUS CHALLENGING HALF-MILLION-DOLLAR DAMAGE CAP IN PUBLIC AGENCY LAWSUITS
Ashley Zauflik’s lawyer said she deserves the full $14 million jury award that followed the 2007 accident at Pennsbury High School in Bucks County. He wants the state Supreme Court to overturn a trial judge’s ruling that cut the award to the $500,000 state tort limit, even though the school district had $11 million worth of insurance coverage.
